Want to start a recycling center but are not sure how? GK has compiled a list of requirements to help get you started in determing the feasibility of recycling in your area.
To get started:
Determine the type of material your facility will be processing. Most common materials are municipal waste, commercial waste, construction & demolition debris, or specialty items such as electronics waste recycling.
Determine local governmental requirements and market size for the particular material processing you wish to do.
Determine local landfill tipping fees, then develop a business model based off tipping and material profits versus the estimated costs to set up and run a profitable recycling operation.
Find a suitable location for your process center that offers easy vehicle access as well as being near companies that are willing to buy recycled material.
